The Power Macintosh 7600 is a personal computer designed, manufactured and sold by Apple Computer from April 1996 to November 1997. The 7600 was essentially a Power Macintosh 7500 with a different CPU card, the change in model number occurring because of the move from the 7500's PPC601 to the 7600's PPC604. Three models were available (120 MHz, 132 MHz and 200 MHz - the last model was not available in North America). Like the 7500, it included advanced Audio-Video ports including RCA audio in and out, S-Video in, composite video in and standard Apple video ports. It was eventually replaced by the Power Macintosh 7300, one of the very few times that Apple updated a computer but gave it a lower model number - the reason is that the 7300 was a joint replacement for the 7600 and the Power Macintosh 7200.

The 7600 features the easy-access "outrigger" desktop case first introduced with the Power Macintosh 7500.
